“Our Spirits Don’t Speak English: Indian Boarding School” documents the past, present and future of an educational system that was designed to destroy Indian culture. Now under Indian control, the schools are teaching Indian culture and language, while preparing students for success in the future.
The film will next be screened Nov. 11 at the American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco and was recently chosen from more than 1,000 entries to play at the 9th Annual Santa Fe Film Festival beginning Dec. 3. For more information visit www.richheape.com.
